Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous input/output system meant for Internet sites which support live communication. Some examples of such websites are online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its visitors in little bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website considerably. When some form with three boxes should be filled by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively in comparison to any other platform, which can exert a significant effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Node.js in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting offered by our company include Node.js and you’re able to add this leading-edge platform to your shared account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can pick the number of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/sites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can get as many instances as you require. Hepsia will also permit you to pick the exact path to your .js app and to choose if you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port number chosen by our cloud hosting system. In addition, you can stop or reboot any instance that you have activated, modify the path to the .js app or view the output of the running instances with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your web hosting Control Panel using an extremely simple-to-use graphical interface.

You’ll be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven software application hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, since the Node.js platform is included with all our semi-dedicated plans and you can set it up with just a few clicks of the mouse. If you wish to use it for multiple sites, you can enable more instances through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The setup is as simple as specifying the location of your .js file and choosing whether the platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the server’s shared IP addresses, so you can take full advantage of Node.js even if you have no previous experience with a similar software platform. Our system will also specify a randomly generated port that will be used to access the .js file for the specific app. Hepsia has a user-friendly graphical interface that will allow you to restart and to shut down any of your existing instances, to activate new ones or to check the output of your apps with just one single click.

Node.js is offered as standard with each and every VPS server that comes with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and imposes no constraints as to the number of Internet sites that can use it at any particular moment. This makes our VPS plans a perfect choice for hosting different real-time web apps and for taking full advantage of them. The Hepsia Control Panel is user-friendly enough even for individuals without any previous experience, so if you’d like to enable Node.js for any app, it won’t take more than a couple of mouse clicks to make this. You’ll simply have to insert the path to the specific .js file and to select if Node.js will use the physical server’s shared IP address or a dedicated one. Our system will also assign a given port number that will be used to access the .js file. After that, you will be all set and ready to use the full potential of your real-time applications. Hepsia will permit you to see the output of the apps and to restart or to shut down any of your instances using quick-access controls.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

Since Hepsia is incredibly intuitive, you will be able to make that without encountering any obstacles, even if you’ve never used Node.js before, as everything that you will need to do on your end is define the folder path to the .js file that will use Node.js and the IP that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated one or can be shared with other web sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you like on our super-powerful dedicated servers and each instance can be controlled independently – you’ll be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to see the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make use of the power of Node.js without effort.
